Storyline

Ripley Academy in Lancaster is the biggest and one of the most successful schools in Lancashire, but despite its outstanding Ofsted report the school can't get its teenage pupils to engage in one of the most important skills imaginable - reading. It's a problem secondary schools and parents are facing across the country. Now Ripley are trying something completely new. They have invited actor and comedian Javone Prince to shake things up a bit - and life in school is about to change. With the help of local lass and reading champion Helen Skelton, Javone's mission is to inspire the school's most reluctant readers to take the plunge and make reading for pleasure a habit for life.
